The current long period swell from the south has peaked and will slowly decrease later in the day. The High Surf Advisory (HSA) will remain in effect all day for all south facing shores and will drop later tonight as the southern swell continues to recede. The surf along the west-facing coasts will remain high due to the long period of southern swells enveloping the western sides of each island.

A northwesterly swell is building in the area today producing fun sized waves through Thursday along the north facing shores. The short period trade wind swell will decrease with lower trade wind speeds forecast throughout the week.
